TENNIS

Dear Members,

           It was a busy summer on the tennis and pickleball courts. Thank you to everyone for joining the staff and I on the court and making it such a fun summer! It’s not too lake to pick up your tennis racquet or give pickleball a try during the fall season. I am available while the weather stays nice to continue tennis and pickleball lessons our here at GLCC. Please contact me to join into the small groups or to set up a private lesson.

The junior classes brought a lot of energy to the courts this summer. I saw improvements in every player in the program and I can’t wait to see what next year brings! Over the summer, the juniors competed in four tennis matches against BCCC and KCC and they played four practice matches against each other. The excitement on court didn’t stop there, the juniors worked hard in class all summer long and with over 115 kids in the program, we had a very competitive Junior Club Championship. The winners are listed below. Thanks to everyone that played tennis this summer.

Members have been busy playing pickleball this summer. We have all levels at the club and it is always fun to see new people give it a try and then quickly see why it is the fastest growing sport.

Congratulations to Lisa Crandell & Mike Miller on winning our second tournament in August. If you are looking for a new paddle, please contact me, I will have paddles for sale year-round.

Can you believe that it is time to start thinking about platform tennis? The weather is feeling more like late fall which means platform is right around the corner. The kick-off mixer will be on Friday, November 3rd starting oat 6:30 pm. Make sure to let me know if you are looking for a new platform paddle. Sleeves of balls will always be available in the GLCC front office.

Hello All!

           What a great summer season we’ve had as the sailing season begins to wind down. Congratulations goes out to Don Parfet for taking 3rd place in the District 4 Championship. The 210 Fleet hosted the Midwest Championship as well as the nationals in early August. Congratulations to Tom VanderMolen and his crew for winning both events! Jim Babel took 2nd in the Midwest and 4th in the Nationals while Joe Brogger took 3rd in the Midwest and 3rd in the Nationals. Steve Parker took 5th in Nationals as well! The junior sailors had a great summer season as well! We are looking forward to hosting the Vintage Gold Star Cup in late September with more to follow!

 

Your Commodore,

         It hardly seems like it is time for me to be writing an article for the September & October Gull Post. What a fantastic summer we have to look back on here at GLCC! Starting back in June with Summer Sailstice on the beachfront, sailing into July with the 4th of July cookout, leading into the fun and amazing times with Twilight Golf and KNO. A summer full of excitingand record breaking Wet & Wild Wednesdays at the pavilion, and our Annual Hully Gully summer party that brought a tremendous turnout. Not to forget the exciting tennis & golf mixers and the remarkable Clambake to finish out the summer season! These are only a few of the events that took place throughout the summer. Fall is going to be great as well and will offer just as much fun for you! Staff, just like the members here at GLCC, never want to see the party end which is precisely why we’ve planned so many events, mixers and parties for September and October.

 

Thanks for joining us for such a wonderful summer, as it was definitely one for the books.

I look forward to seeing you around the Club to enjoy many more fabulous events. The back of the Gull Post will have event dates to place on your calendar.

 

Cheers,

Kristin Kuball
